Mia + Pinterest = Me taking less naps

Mia has a list of about nine gabillion projects that she plans to accomplish every week thanks to the bane of my existence, Pinterest. 

The only use I have for Pinterest is to find more recipes involving chocolate and the occasional therapy worksheet. The rest of that crap makes me kind of crazy. Case in point: chalkboard signs. 

Anyway, Mia has been dying to make her own lipsticks. When I hear the words "homemade lipstick" I immediately think "worst mess in the history of messes." However, leave it to Mia to handle this project like the little expert that she is.
 She promised me that it would be easy and she was actually right. Non-toxic crayons and coconut oil - that's it.
 Ten minutes later she had her aunts' Christmas gifts complete (Aubrie and Maresa, act surprised when you open it).
I'm tellin' ya, you've got to get yourself a ten-year-old girl. They are the most fun ever.

Before I read the aunt gift line I was already thinking "I want to try those!". I WILL be excited!

Now I want to make those? Can I come over this weekend? Or really when she wants to make something you should totally send her over to my mom's house, she's got a craft supply Mia would never want to leave!
